Shortly after moving to Germany in 2006, I had the extraordinary luck to meet the most amazing woman in the world. Oh yeah, she also happened to be German. Two years later we added our son to the mix, and after marveling at the differences in our own family for a few years Germerican Denglish was born.
This is a blog about the adventures that we go through living in a multinational family and raising a bilingual child, some serious and some funny. Well, we think some of it is funny anyway. I would say we are caught between two cultures, but I think instead that we get the best of both worlds. Hopefully the stories from our life, and random observations by me, will be interesting and/or entertaining for you. If not, then I apologize in advance for torturing you.
What started as a culture & language blog is gradually expanding to include among other things, soccer. The reason I have decided to include soccer is that becoming a fan of “the Beautiful Game” is one of the major changes that I underwent after moving to Germany. I am also passionate about it’s popularity increase in the US, so if I can assist that in any way at all I am more than happy to help. America just doesn’t know what it’s missing!
